Eastleigh Works: 08 May - 09May

57003 at Eastleigh Works has been reinstated to pool XHCK (DRS Class 57). It may have been inside the works about a month ago, but as of Thursday 31st it was outside in the usual area, parked with 57011. Arrival at Eastleigh on 13th September 2017, and was stored shortly afterwards.

70006 has been stored at Leeds, leaving only 8 Freightliner class members in traffic, many working to and from Maritime each week. I first noted this loco on Shap in July 2011, then most recently at St Denys two weeks ago.

56303, which has been an occasional visitor to Eastleigh, has suffered collision damage at Wembley, reported to have been moved at least its own length in the impact, the other party involved has not yet been identified to the public. Its last working appears to have been on 22nd: one two three four five
